A Gift

un cadeau


Today is a gift….. Beautiful and free

























This morning i was awakened by the song of birds and the early sun 
rising over the ridge to say hello through my window. It seemed-the morning was asking me to remember this, remember to breath and take in the moments that await you….


Today is a gift and within it holds Freedom…. a chance to leave a lasting touch on this couples beginning, to create, interact with others, to take in the happiness within Love & Freedom.


Love is Such a beautiful gift

What I love about weddings is the momentum – the process of building a celebration from the first meeting and sharing ideas, dreams, images and emotions  — to the actual day of prep, loading, unloading, calculated structures – the MacGyver thought moments –  “how are we going to hang this heavy fabric from a tree?” Its the muscle and grit of actually creating it all on the day and succeeding to tell another love story. I am – as some of you may already know – a sucker for ceremonies. I savor the moments of IDo’s

and i relish in the captured moments of fulfilled vision, future dreams, a spin on the dance floor and the last cheer of the night.

“I fell in love hard” she said, “I knew it when i first laid eyes on him. He captured my heart and mind and i was gone”


“She is my first thought in the morning and my last thought as i lay my head down on my pillow, i am completely unfettered around her, but all together myself with her by my side. I look for her face in a crowd and listen for her sound across the room.”



This had to be the cutest guest sign in idea 








 

 



Weddings are my thing…i love them, create and breath into them.

 

and after all the details are in place,,,my heart and soul loves to linger in the moments…you will find me deep in thought and in need of peace & quiet to reflect upon creating, gathering & styling. I love to escape with a glass of wine in hand and candles glowing, we (pepper, tedders and Jim) hang out in my hubs surf hut, take a load off, reflect and breath the gift of this day. Watch the sun go down and dream.
Cheers!

 Flowers… are a proud assertion that a ray of beauty out values all the utilities of the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1844
Here…in the few photos below are gathered petals.. proud assertions we
have had the great pleasure of gathering, styling, taking in the aroma of each flower and twining together with a beautiful silk ribbon
{The Bouquet}
like the Bride herself are the show stoppers
as she walks the bridal aisle, step – pause – step…She and her bouquet
this – the moment when every thought of
love, hope, planning, commitment, future and excitement come together
all held with in the palm of her hands

{A Love Affair}
Moments captured by Michelle Johnson Photography
Ok, lets just say,,,i had my own little love affair with this wedding.
the colors, flowers, that wedding dress….the bride and groom.
they had it all…Exquis …{french for Outstanding, superb}
The ceremony took place at Mariners Church, filled with its rich woods and beautiful natural light, lots of candles in which, cast a soft romantic hue
over the ceremony – it was breathtaking.
I love to watch as much as I can of the ceremony…without getting noticed. however: I find myself inching forward to hear every spoken word of love and commitment…eventually; finding myself filling in an empty spot next to the Aunt of somebody.
Its why we florist of the wedding industry do what and why we do.
its why we hit the flower mart at 3am in the morning and
get each detail to the wedding as near perfect as humanly able.
We have a love affair for love affairs…plain and simple.
